Nuts contain lots of unsaturated fatty acids, which promote the development of the brain by helping the growth of brain cells. This effectively improves memory and concentration. Therefore, nuts are particularly healthy snacks for students who are studying. In addition, nuts delay the atrophy of brain cells which may help to prevent Alzheimer’s.

•Rosemary tea
Rosemary tea can help ward off sleepiness and help you concentrate on studying longer as it clears the head and improves memory and concentration. Rosemary effectively stimulates the brain and nervous system, quickens the circulation of the blood, prevents Alzheimer’s, and releases stress by relaxing muscle tension.

•Tofu (bean curd) & soy (bean)
Tofu is a useful food for students. Soybean, which is the main ingredient of bean curd, is called “brain food” because choline and lecithin (essential elements of brain development) are very high among vegetables. And beans are rich in the complex form of carbohydrates, which can become an energy source for the brain.

(Back blue colored fish – real fish name??) is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acid, an unsaturated fat, is beneficial for blood health. DHA and EPA are Omega 3s. DHA is a component of eye and brain nerve cells, so it directly promotes the function of brain cells and memory/learning ability. EPA can lower your blood pressure and help quicken the circulation of blood to the brain.
